The former Hartlepool United manager Neale Cooper has died at the age of 54.

The Scot, who led Pools in two separate spells and enjoyed great success as a midfielder for Sir Alex Ferguson’s Aberdeen, was in a critical condition after being found in the stairwell of flats in the Bucksburn area of Aberdeen. Cooper had been taken to¬†Aberdeen Royal Infirmary before it was later announced that he had passed away.

Also a former Rangers and Aston Villa player, Cooper is well remembered at Hartlepool for his time at the helm in League One, as Pools reached the play-offs in 2004 and did so again in 2005, though Cooper stepped down near the end of the latter campaign.
